Local government planners can help with pollen, nectar

What our pollinators need most here is a plan for bigtime expansion for pollen and nectar production

Trish Elwick’s encouragement to plant bee (pollinator) gardens as part of the million garden challenge is welcome in the Cowichan Valley. However what our pollinators need most here is a plan for bigtime expansion for pollen and nectar production for all our pollinators, not just honey bees. This means our planners in the CVRD, North Cowichan and City of Duncan have to get with the program.

The technology for pollinator conservation is available and is working well in other countries and regions.
